Los Angeles — The Digital Entertainment Group (DEG) will present a “Green Media Summit” April 2 at the Luxe Hotel, here, as the first in a series of events aimed at educating the studio and entertainment communities about environmentally friendly options for the delivery of digital entertainment media.
The summit is a one-day invitation-only meeting for personnel in creative services, marketing and sales, the DEG said. Attendees will encompass content holders and partners.
“We need to make certain we deliver the content — be it physical or digital media — in an eco-friendly manner that is respectful of the environment,” said Bob Chapek, DEG chairman and Walt Disney Studios Worldwide Home Entertainment president. “Now, more than ever, we need to work together to find solutions that help us watchdog ourselves into making a cleaner, greener world.”
The event is being co-produced by the Entertainment Supply Chain Academy (ESCA), which will be developing the conference program in cooperation with title-sponsor Capgemini.
Reed Business Information, publisher of TWICE, Variety, Video Business, Content Agenda and the Green Report, is the event’s media partner.
“The home entertainment community plans to accelerate its leadership in adopting environmental best practices and the Green Summit is where our industry will gather for the first time to exchange market intelligence and develop a collaborative game plan,” stated Amy Jo Smith, executive director, DEG.
